South Street Initiative
15 St. Rose Street
The South Street Initiative is a community task force organization working at the South Street Housing Development in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. It has several projects underway, including a community garden and support of a Resident Health Advocate. Its major project is the South Street Youth Center.
The mission of the South Street Youth Center is to provide a safe, educational, and engaging space during out-of-school time for young residents of the South Street Development. Through its broad-based programs, participants learn a happy, healthy, resilient attitude toward life that will help sustain them through adulthood.
